Your trip to Bangladesh allows you to visit the most promising student venues, including Dhaka, Chittagong, and Sylhet. It will take you on an incredible journey as a specialist in higher education and (in all likelihood) as a first-time visitor to the beautiful land of Bangladesh.
Bangladesh’s capital, DHAKA, is not a quiet, retiring place. The city, bursting with nearly 17 million people (most of whom often seem to be stuck in the same traffic jam as you), is a gloriously noisy and chaotic place, bubbling with energy.
Friendly SYLHET is a divisional capital with a pronounced small-town feel, its congested streets and bustling roadside markets chipping in with requisite measures of sights, sounds and smells. The town also gives off a strong underlying sense of economic prosperity. For the visitor, it also means the availability of excellent hotels and restaurants, easier access to creature comforts and a disproportionately large local population that speaks good English.
CHITTAGONG is Bangladesh’s second-largest city and the country's largest port. It’s a gritty, polluted and congested place, but as the gateway to the Chittagong Hill Tracts – one of the most beautiful and fascinating corners of the country – it’s somewhere that many visitors pass through at some point.
Built on the northern bank of the Padma River, RAJSHAHI is a fun university town with enough color and attractions to keep you occupied for a short visit. Most importantly, the city houses the University of Rajshahi, one of Bangladesh’s best and most renowned universities.
COX’S BAZAR – named for an 18th-century British East India Company captain – is a place dear to most Bangladeshis’ hearts. As everyone you meet will tell you, it’s the longest continual natural beach on the planet (a whopping 125km), and the place where the country likes to come to relax.
